NI Has Drawn With Denmark And Romania In Euro 2021 Qualifiers – Group 8

Euro 2021 qualifiers are the group eight contained by Ukraine, Denmark, Finland, Malta and Romania with Northern Ireland Under – 21s. The former English professional footballer Ian Baraclough side was drawn to PotE on Tuesday in Nyon, Switzerland. Two of the sides, Denmark and Romania, both from Northern Ireland’s group have qualified for the upcoming year’s finals which are to be held in Italy. The 2021 championships will be together hosted by two countries of Slovenia and Hungary.

In spite of the fact that u21 finished second in a pretty impressive campaign including a victory over Spain by 2-1 in Alcabate, they narrowly missed out the eligibility for coming year’s tournament. They gathered a total of 20 points after their win over Slovakia in the final match. It was not enough to qualify Northern Ireland into 12-team tournament. Romania achieved top of their qualifying round by holding off Portugal and Denmark also finished with the first position in Group Three qualifying for the finals.

Ireland is left to face a hard combat against Italy and Sweden in Group One. The Republic of Ireland also is also preparing to face Iceland, Armenia, and Luxembourg as they expect to develop on their third-place finish in the qualifiers of Euro 2019. Mick McCarthy is all set to hand over the reins and responsibilities to Stephen Kenny, the former Dundalk boss as the Republic’s senior boss in 2020. The nine group winners will move forward to the finals along with the tournament hosts after the qualifiers from March 2019 to October 2020. The final berth will be vacant for the winner of runners-up play-offs. Euro 2021 is set to be a very competitive tournament and the teams are all lined up equally well.
